    Our special guest will get there eventually, if the server is full when he's ready, a player is being kicked.

    FLASHBACK: April 29, 2008. Goldrush is released with the Medic Update. It's so awesome that it's called the Goldrush Update, not the Medic Update.
    CURRENT DAY: April 29, 2011. Goldrush turns three years old. We must celebrate it's awesomeness.

    When: April 29th, 2011 at 9:00pm ET (6:00pm Pacific)
    Where: Cafe of Broken Dreams!
    What: Dario Day. A celebration of all TF2 things Dario.
    Who: You!
    Why: Special Guests!

    Friday, April 29th at 9:00pm Eastern, we will be playing all of Dario's maps in order of release date. Now, you all might hate Goldrush and Thundermountain, but there will be Special Guests* and Gift Bombs**! PLUS, I will be giving random items and hats*** to people throughout the night! So I expect all of you to be there. If there is a password for the server, the chatroom will let you know.

    *A certain captain of chaos
    **If you could spend a couple bucks on some Secret Saxtons or a Gift Bomb, I'd love you
    ***Donate hats to Littleedge and I'll give them out.

    Happy birthday Goldrush!
    Great idea... But it's not very EU friendly :<

    I'm not a huge fan on Payload, but I might join in. The fact it's not EU doesn't help though.

    Have 2 games going at once, an EU game and a US game. Perfect for all!

    That leaves one problem, how do we split Dario in half?
    I mean, far as i know the idea of this thing is that Dario gets to play his maps with us, the community, that why the thread calls it Dario Day.

    It's not the Server, it's the time. 9:00pm Eastern is like 4am here in the UK.

    I should donate that one hat I still have that I'm not using. I'm too lazy to try trading it anymore. When you get a friend request from me, that's why.

    I plan on doing mapper days from now until the summer ends, so when a Valve employee can't come or if I pick an EU TF2Mapper, I'll set it up for EU times and all.

    Mappers I have thought about: Driller, Iikka, YM, Rexy, Shmitz, Mangy, Ace. But that's just without really thinking about who has more than one map (I'll be giving it more thought and asking the chat what they think when the time comes). I was also planning on having the last two days being a mashup of other lesser known or one-map-only mappers.


    Update on Dario Day: Since I'm poor and Irish and don't like giving away the stuff I've worked at, I am taking donations for giveaways for the day. I'll be giving away a Vintage Demoman's Fro and a couple paints that I'll never use. Steve the Pocket has given me a Buckaroo's Hat to give out, and Doom has given me a Scotsman's Stove Pipe to give out too. If you have a hat or paint or tags that you want to give out, you can send them to me and I'll hand them out in a semi-scheduled fashion.

    I hope you're trolling. Goldrush, Badwater, Pipeline, Thundermountain.

    He's really only made those four maps? What did he do before payload came out?

    I've been dying to say, "Sorry, Dario, our payload cart is in another castle" ever since this thread started.
